June birthstone: caring for your pearls…

Care & Maintenance     pearl necklace

Due to the delicacy of their nature-grown exterior, pearls require special care and attention. They should never be cleaned in an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner or with harsh, abrasive chemicals. To remove surface dirt, you can use a soft cloth moistened with water and mild soap. To restore your pearls’ natural beauty, we recommend taking the stones to a professional jeweler for an expert cleaning.

The best way to ensure the continuing radiance of your pearl jewelry is to wear it as often as possible. When the pearls are exposed to the natural oils of your skin, the contact helps to enhance their lustrous surface.

To preserve the beauty of natural or cultured pearls, eliminate exposure to sprays, perfumes, and cosmetics, as these can cause dullness or discoloration. When they’re not being worn, store your pearls in a separate compartment or pouch to prevent them from getting scratched by other jewelry pieces.
